Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
My Satellite has generally VERY WEAK and very unstable connections to wireless. Only if I am right next to a very strong hub does the signal remain strong and intact - and even then it may cut out every 20-30 minutes. In my house 5 of us use the wireless and everyone else is just fine, but mine again only works very near the hub - and again with breaks (often meaning downloads have to be restarted, etc.)
I am using the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG hardware and have downloaded the latest drivers and have set the power use to maximum. I'm not 100% sure about the other settings. I have enabled throughput enhancement. Should I maximize roaming aggressiveness? Should I purchase an external USB wireless adaptor?
Any other suggestions?
I would see if buying a cheapy PCMIA wireless card and trying that out.
It sounds like your wireless card might be screwed up. And there are so many things that can interfere with those things. They are kind of finicky.
Definitely look into getting a PCMIA or USB wireless device and try it out. I personally wouldn't buy something that was pricey and would try and get something reasonable. REMEMBER 802.11 is backwards compatible (G is compatible with B AND A) so you don't necessarily need the newest greatest thing.
Best of luck.

Tips for a great answer:
Had same problem - said signal weak although strong on other devices, and hung on authenticating.
Cordless phone on base unit was beside wireless router. Moved unit and turned off phone. Problem disappeared, and signal showed strong.
